Candice heeft samen met haar man Joe besloten om met hun gezin te verhuizen naar Nashville in de Amerikaanse staat Tennessee. In haar podcast met Kayla liet ze weten midden in het verhuisproces te zitten. Één van de redenen dat het stel besloot te verhuizen is omdat in een meer landelijke omgeving willen wonen, daarom hebben ze net buiten Tennessee en huis gekocht met een stuk land.

Ook liet ze weten recent in het Tennesse te zijn voor werk, alleen kon ze nog niet vertellen voor welk project.

Claire heeft een interview gehad met, hiervoor heeft ze een nieuwe fotoshoot gehad met Melody Mai. Hierin praat ze o.a. over haar recente investering in de huidverzorgingslijn ‘Fig. 1’.

“I was a stage-five clinger begging them to let me invest in the company.”

During the bright, sparkly, sunny days of June there is an unwritten law that you must take at least one day off—a vacation from the everyday routine of daily life, even if you don’t go anywhere.

Today is not that day for 33-year-old Claire Holt, and all signs point to the fact that it may not be the season either.

When we speak, the mom-of-two is patiently dealing with a chatty toddler (“I thought I’d stick him in front of the iPad but, apparently, he’s not interested”); gearing up for the release of her big summer film project, Untitled Horror Movie (a not-so-standard side note: she had to light herself, record her own sound and do her own hair and makeup for shooting); excitedly awaiting the launch of a limited-edition collection with swimwear brand Andie (she helped design it); and just announced that she’s an investor in Fig. 1, a new direct-to-consumer skin-care line that puts “extra consideration on chemistry” (a legit claim, as the founders consist of a Harvard dermatologist and a cosmetic chemist).

Why a beauty line?
“It wasn’t something I ever planned to get into. I’ve always been obsessed with skin care, all the tricks to stay youthful [laughs], all the anti-aging tips and all those things. But I never had a plan to get involved with something like a skin-care line.

Ian en Paul hebben een interview gehad met Forbes om hun Bourbonmerk ‘Brother’s Bond’ te promomten, deze verschint officieel op 1 mei.

According to Bacardi Limited’s annual trends report, 70 percent of North American consumers sought out sustainable or eco-friendly spirits brands at the end of 2020. While the upward trend of sustainable demand offers a positive shift in the market for now, all too often trends are just that—a fleeting moment. For Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, actors, directors, and activists, however, they intend to surpass sustainability with the debut of their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, by supporting regenerative agriculture.

“Building communities around farming and regenerative agriculture is the way to the future,” Somerhalder told Forbes. He explained that in the next decade there’s an opportunity for a great change in agricultural practices as the existing generation passes control to a younger (and by proxy, more progressive-thinking) generation. “We see that as a very powerful and positive thing,” he said. “The companies that are going to create the largest amount of stewardship are the companies with the triple bottom line: people, plant, profit.”

According to a 2020 journal published by MDPI, in comparison to the short-range concepts of sustainability, regenerative practices—including regenerative farming—reflect a holistic world view and aim for thriving living systems, where whole-system health and wellbeing increase continually. The journal furthers Somerhalder’s narrative and adds, “although the advancement of regenerative practices will require fundamental shifts supported by more awareness and education, theoretical and practical development, leadership, empowering communities, and integrating spirituality,” we should focus on regenerative sustainability because it addresses the “root causes of (un)sustainability.”

“Agriculture contributes more to climate change than all the cars on the road and all the planes in the sky, so that is where we make our stand,” Somerhalder emphasized.

The concept of Brother’s Bond originated during the early days of “The Vampire Diaries”—The CW hit series that aired from 2009 to 2017—where Wesley and Somerhalder first met and enacted the roles of the Salvatore brothers. Though Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) shared many drams of bourbon on set, they revealed that the brown liquid consumed during the episodes was actually iced tea—so by the end of the day, they were ready for the real deal. Wesley shared, “Not to sound cheesy, but we would bond over bourbon after shooting.”

After 11 years, eight seasons and 171 episodes, Wesley and Somerhalder nurtured a brotherhood offset as conversations over their daily drink spanned from climate change and philanthropy to creating their own bourbon. They said that when filming ended, it was time to combine these recurring topics into a brand that extended beyond the show.

“We’re aware that although [“The Vampire Diaries”] was popular, it’s still finite,” said Wesley. “We want Brother’s Bond to transcend past TV and past our bond to create a community.”

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Ian Somerhalder tells PEOPLE of the craft bourbon he created with Paul Wesley, Brother’s Bond

Though it’s been four years since Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley last shared the screen as brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore on The CW drama The Vampire Diaries, the real-life best friends haven’t missed a beat while creating and developing their joint passion project: bourbon.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, the duo open about their latest venture, their friendship throughout the years, and whether or not there’s a possibility of reprising their Vampire Diaries roles in the future.

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Somerhalder, 42, says of their craft bourbon Brother’s Bond, which will be available in stores and online May 1. “Our soul is in this bottle.”
